Adventures in 3D Printing
Maybe "adventures" is too hopeful...
Getting a printer
I wrote a grant with our local Delta Kappa Gamma organization. They give out small $200-500 grants each year. I was awarded $400. I was able to find a Da Vinci Jr., plus buy extra rolls of filament.
Then what happened?
Update: November 2017
I have since unplugged it and am waiting for new front desk computers. Our current workstations are too old to run the printer software. Once the computers are here, we'll hook the printer directly to the PC, and students will be encouraged to do their own tinkering!
